  • Great information about WWI and the civil war that I did not know about. It is small now while new museum is being built. It will be a beautiful museum once open.  more »

  • MOHAI is the place to go for a thorough history of Seattle and the Pacific Northwest. With engaging exhibits, hands-on activities, and interesting films this museum is ideal for the whole family. The museum had a dedicated kids space with toys and comfortable seating and books to read. It's perfect if you have a little one that needs a break from the exhibits. There is also a great interactive railroad exhibit complete with railroad ties and hammers for construction.
  • Wow so good, did not spend as much time in there as I wanted, it was route 66 car show, I'll be back.
  • Very good. Well presented. Need to update website with right hours.
  • Beautiful place. Plan on several hours here if you want to see it all.
  • Just the theater is open now but looks like it will be a nice museum. The jukebox was made the same year I was born 1949. WOW
